How much are water jet cutting machines?

How much are water jet cutting machines?

Pricing for small waterjet cutting systems can start around $60k and complete custom systems can reach into the millions. It all depends on your application. You should also factor delivery and disposal costs into your cost for abrasive.

Can a water jet cut steel?

Abrasive waterjets are ideally suited for tough and lucrative applications for any metal cutting. More than just common materials of mild steel and aluminum, abrasive waterjets easily cut titanium, Inconel®, brass, and tool steel.

What is the best waterjet cutter?

Mach 500
The Mach 500 is the best waterjet cutting machine available on the market in terms of accuracy and cutting speed. The 87,000 psi Hyperjet high pressure pump combined with the most technologically advanced features to drive overall processing time down, and production and profitability up.

How thick of metal can a water jet cut?

Practically speaking 2″ (5 cm) to 3″ (7.5 cm) thick steel is about the upper thickness limit for an abrasive waterjet. If you want to cut steel that is thicker than 3″ (7.5 cm), the time to cut goes up significantly and it becomes less and less cost-effective to use a waterjet.

How strong is a water jet cutter?

Typical waterjet cutting pressure is between 50,000 and 60,000 PSI. Many newer systems are pressurized up to 90,000 PSI. The water at this pressure is then released through a small orifice machined into a diamond or saphire, usually in the range of 5 to 15 thousandths of an inch diameter.

How thick of metal can a waterjet cut?

What materials can water jet cut?

Alloys. Inconel,Hastalloy,Waspalloy,Titanium,Aluminum,Stainless etc.

  • Steels. Inconel,Hastalloy,Waspalloy,Titanium,Aluminum,Stainless etc.
  • Laminates. Waterjet,in most cases,does not see any difference between laminated materials – e.g.
  • Composites.
  • Plastics/Acrylics.
  • Rubber.
  • Gaskets.
  • Fiberglass.
  • Glass.
  • What are the different types of water jet cutting machines?

    There are two different types of CNC waterjet machines, pure and abrasive. Pure waterjet machines primarily cut with a high pressurized stream of water compared to the abrasive waterjet machine that combines abrasive substances, and the high pressurized stream of water to cut harder materials. Pure waterjet machines are ideal for plastics

    How does a water jet cut metal?

    Metal Cutting. Cutting with Water Jets can cut through metals up to 150mm thick. This is done by propelling water up to 2000mph through rigid, high pressure hoses and jets at a pressure of up to 60,000PSI, these jets can contain abrasive substances, such as garnet which erode away the material.

    How thick a material can a water jet cut through?

    Waterjets can cut virtually anything such as metal, ceramic, stone, glass, foam, plastic, and, you guessed it, wood! Using an abrasive garnet mixed with water, and the extremely high pressure (up to 60,000 psi) of the waterjet, the stream is strong enough to penetrate the wood and cut materials up to 5″ thick at speeds of up to 600″/minute.
